Dante is in a small, temporary cage right now. I'm waiting for the next available paycheck to buy a cage four times this size off amazon. (Can't wait, I don't like him being in such a small cage after he's lived in an aviary so long)
But, for the next couple of months, how does this look to you guys? I keep buying him toys whenever I go to the store, but he won't play with any of them. Soft toys, rope toys, beaded toys, plastic chains, paper tubes... you name it. He won't play with anything. Sigh.
Mostly he just sits in that one spot and waits for me to take him out. Makes me feel especially bad on the days I can't hold him much. He's a social little guy. I'm trying to find him a companion, but I'm not sure I'm comfortable putting a second bird in this little cage.
The food dishes are small, because if I offer him anything bigger he... uses them, uh, recreationally.
He's eating primarily CHOP with some seed mixed in, and the local bird shop's cockatiel mix seeds, with a dish full of pellets for free choice. He gets healthy table scraps (salads, fruits, veggies, whole grain noodles, etc) though his favorite is to share my Ritz crackers.
Ah, and just today I switched his water bowl out for one of those silo waterers.

Assorted pics, just for fun.
